Spring 2017 – Week 10

Yikes. Almost 2000 words for a mere weekly write-up. I started this weekly seasonal posts to ease up my workload. Looks like it ended up having an adverse effect. Not that I’m against it. Alice to Zouroku – Episode 10 I really love Alice to Zouroku. I think it deserves a far better distinction from […]

Flying Witch – Afterthoughts

And there we have it. Considering Flying Witch as one of the best in the iyashikei/slice-of-life genre on par with Aria and Hidamari Sketch isn’t an over-exaggeration nor an over-appreciation. To each his own tea, as they say, as a certain sub-market of anime consumers tag Flying Witch (or any other iyashikei/SoL shows) as “boring” or […]

Flying Witch – Episode 10

Having non-existent cooking skills myself, it’s like rubbing salt to a wound just by watching Nao clumsily survive their Home Economics class. While it’s fun to watch the trio’s goofiness in the kitchen, I feel kinda bad laughing at Nao. I’m much, much worse than her — seriously. So bad that it’s probably a better […]

Flying Witch – Episode 9

Eyyy~ Eyyyy eyy eyyyyyy eyyyy eeyyyyyy — reminiscent of those highschool moments when your seatmate makes snickering and annoying sounds to tease you and your crush reminds me of how awfully embarrassing this is, even more if your crush denies it and calls you “that thing”. However, when viewed as a spectator, I can’t help but […]

Flying Witch – Episode 8

I’m glad I wasn’t drinking my OJ when the fox barked. I was actually half expecting that the fox will indeed say kon kon as what Makoto explained — but yes, the fox BARKED. For the time being, the ignorant me will believe that they really make barking sounds until I do my Google/Youtube search […]

Flying Witch – Episode 7

Flying Witch makes me want to take a paid leave, then set off with my cat on a Sunday morning stroll. If only I can hold an actual conversation with my cat, this idea would be perfect. This week’s installment is equal parts relaxing and cute. We’ve gotten no less than what we come to […]

Flying Witch – Episode 6

Flying Witch blends both the mundane and the supernatural together to form a truly satisfying experience. We are treated yet again with another fun-filled slice of life showing with a twist of fantasy as we join the Kuramoto family’s silly antics in this episode. There are few kinds of laughter that are just contagious. Even if the […]

Flying Witch – Episode 5

That’s probably one of the most down to earth slice of life episode I’ve seen. Technically, nothing really substantial happened here, but to those who pays close attention to what’s happening, you’ll be rewarded with something more of what you’re expecting. First half of the episode was spent with Chito and Chinatsu just running around the […]

Flying Witch – Episode 4

Have you ever been in a situation wherein you’re listening to a joke, and you guessed how the punchline will end up but the way it was executed made the laugh even more satisfying? Flying Witch sure did crack me silly this episode. It’s been a while since I giggled at something genuinely, and watching […]

Flying Witch – Episode 3

I find this show a bit more enjoyable than normal due to the fact that I’m a country bumpkin myself. I’ve pretty much spent my whole adolescent-teenage years in our small rural province, yet I never got the time to till the soil off our backyard, much less pulling weeds. Hmm, maybe I did try […]
